Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Olle Melander mostly deals with Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bioinformatics, Case-control study, Blood pressure, Genetic association and Locus. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Diabetes mellitus and Cardiology.

As a member of one scientific family, Olle Melander mostly works in the field of Cardiology, focusing on Hazard ratio and, on occasion, Heart failure. His research on Single-nucleotide polymorphism frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Haplotype. Olle Melander focuses mostly in the field of Endocrinology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cohort and, in certain cases, Proportional hazards model.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Genome-Wide Association Analysis Identifies Loci for Type 2 Diabetes and Triglyceride Levels (2462 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Cardiology, Genome-wide association study and Blood pressure. Internal medicine connects with themes related to Diabetes mellitus in his study. His Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Insulin and Disease.

His Diet and cancer research extends to Endocrinology, which is thematically connected. His Genome-wide association study research integrates issues from Genetic association, Locus and Bioinformatics. His Blood pressure research incorporates themes from Body mass index and Polymorphism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (68.26%)
  • Endocrinology (27.40%)
  • Cardiology (22.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (68.26%)
  • Cardiology (22.26%)
  • Cohort (10.16%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Cardiology, Cohort, Diabetes mellitus and Proportional hazards model. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology and Oncology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mendelian randomization and Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genome-wide association study in addition to Oncology.

His Cardiology study incorporates themes from Stroke and Blood pressure. His Cohort research includes elements of Coronary artery disease, Biomarker and Cohort study. His work carried out in the field of Diabetes mellitus brings together such families of science as Body mass index and Disease.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trans-ethnic association study of blood pressure determinants in over 750,000 individuals. (102 citations)
  • Genome-wide association and Mendelian randomisation analysis provide insights into the pathogenesis of heart failure. (70 citations)
  • A catalog of genetic loci associated with kidney function from analyses of a million individuals (52 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

Olle Melander mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study, Hazard ratio, Disease and Cardiology. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study research is included under the broader classification of Genetics.

His Hazard ratio study also includes fields such as

  • Coronary artery disease together with Lower risk, Diet and cancer and Odds ratio,
  • Quartile that connect with fields like Urology, Creatinine and Neurology. As part of the same scientific family, Olle Melander usually focuses on Disease, concentrating on Oncology and intersecting with Scavenger receptor and Fatty acid-binding protein. His study explores the link between Cardiology and topics such as Prospective cohort study that cross with problems in Stroke.
